OCing an OCed card.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've had this 460 for a few months now and really love it. It was an OC edition and I wanted to try OCing it even more. Runs perfectly stable as is, and runs super cool (27c idle) at the lowest fan speed. Never seen it go above 50c during gaming.

Not sure how far I should try pushing it? Ideas?

800 Core, 1900 Mem. Try that in Kombustor.

Alright I'll give that a try. I've never used Kombustor for, anything particular I should be looking for when testing this? (aside from heat and artifacts?)

Yeah, check if it stops working. Lol, seriously. Just keep pushing those clocks until the driver restarts, that's when you know you've gone to far.

Only push either core or mem at a time so you will know which one is unstable.

Currently 900/1800/2000. O.o Still stable.

If your still happy with temps then keep going really. But kumbustor isn't exactly the ultimate stress tester, you will have to run some games on it. Crysis and BC2 are particularly harsh.

Hmm. I was wondering... would I have to re open the game every time I change the clocks or can I change it while the game is still running?

Edit: Was getting some weird red dots at the top of the screen in Witcher 2 at said settings. Lowered them a bit and they disappeared. Noticeably different though. Bad Company 2 seems to run fine though.

You shouldn't be changing settings mid game, that can cause instability. You can set individual game/program profiles though I have never bothered so I can't help you with doing that.
